Dana White invites UFC champion Kamaru Usman, the welterweight GOAT

In an interview with TSN Aaron Bronstetter, UFC President Dana White said she believed UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman was the greatest welterweight of all time.

Usman has the longest winning streak in welterweight history and is tied with Tyron Woodley for the title with four behind Matt Hughes’s nine and Georges St-Pierre’s twelve.

White stated the reasoning behind his free loyalty to Usman.

“I just think that if you look at what this guy has done, every time he fights, he looks better and better,” White said. “He literally fought everyone out there and now he’s going to these guys for the second time. And the fight with him and Colby Covington is one of the best fights I have ever seen. “

Although many would immediately point out that Georges St-Pierre is the greatest welterweight of all time, White agreed with the fact that there are better contenders at the top of the division back then when St-Pierre was champion.

He also agreed with the idea that Usman could have been a champion a long time ago if he had been given a title.

Independently, Usman will try to add to his legacy by successfully defending his title for the fifth time with a victory over no. 4th contender Jorge Masvidal on April 24 at UFC 261.

Usman and Masvidal head to UFC 261 on Saturday in a rematch. Usman defeated Masvidal at UFC 251 in July 2020, but Masvidal entered a very short warning and believes a full training camp will put the scales in his favor.
